|Title:||Inhibition of aflatoxin B1-DNA binding and adduct formation by selenium in rats||Authors:||Shi, C.-Y.
|Issue Date:||29-Jul-1994||Citation:||Shi, C.-Y.,Chua, S.-C.,Lee, H.-P.,Ong, C.-N. (1994-07-29). Inhibition of aflatoxin B1-DNA binding and adduct formation by selenium in rats. Cancer Letters 82 (2) : 203-208. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||The effect of selenium on aflatoxin B1-DNA binding and adduct formation was studied. Male Fischer 344 rats, fed with up to 8 ppm of sodium selenite in drinking water for 8 weeks, were given a single i.p. dose of aflatoxin B1. The rats were killed 24 h later and the amount of AFB1 bound to hepatic DNA and the amount of DNA adducts formed were determined. Selenium pretreatment resulted in a dose-dependent inhibition of AFB1-DNA binding as well as adduct formation. This was accompanied by an increase of reduced glutathione (GSH) in the liver of selenium-treated animals. These results suggest that selenium could effectively inhibit AFB1-induced DNA damage, which may be partially responsible for its anticarcinogenic effect against AFB1. © 1994.||Source Title:||Cancer Letters||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/113524||ISSN:||03043835|
